I used to suffer sinus headaches all the time. I never knew the difference until I had a migraine. What a huge difference. The pain of a migraine was so much more intense I could barely move and needed to lay under the covers with a pillow over my eyes to block out light and sound. It was the most horrific pain ever. I didn’t even want anyone to breath on me the pain was so bad.

Then I moved to Austin and found I was starting to get sinus headaches from Cedar allergies. Apparently cedar allergies are a big thing here. I had done the route of allergists to try to avoid the sinus headaches, but they started getting really bad again.

Then I found out that some chiropractors use an instrument called an activator that is gentle and precise and that this kind of chiropractic care can knock out headaches. I was skeptical, but decided I didn’t have anything to lose by trying it and if it helped at all I would be so much better off. I researched it a lot and then decided on Stakes Chiropractic Center in Austin because he was an advanced certified in that technique and now it really doesn’t matter what is causing the headache, usually before I leave Dr. Stakes office the headache is all gone or almost all gone. I would have bet BIG money it wouldn’t work but I’m grateful especially at this time of year when the craziness gets out of control that I don’t have to pop pain relievers. I’ve had kids, and headaches, especially migraines are some of the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. Right up there with a tooth infection.
